  1. A landscape full of daffodils is always such a cheerful sight. How amazing that your winter was frost-free. I always look forward to our frosty days because it means a beautiful blue sky and winter sunshine later in the day.

    1. Thanks Anneli, we have had no snow, not even a frost this winter, which is unheard of, and as a result the flowers and buds have decided to go for it. Hope yours do too soon 🙂

  2. Beautiful photos… Can see myself in those gardens, holding hand of person I love and thinking about nothing…away from job stress, away from all others problems we are all surrounded by. This is what Dubai (we live in Dubai) really missing…
